A Step Forward

Dad did well in his surgery to install a PEG tube in his abdomen to supply tube feeding nutrition without the aggravation of the tube in the nose.  He’s tolerating the formula better and seems to be in better spirits having had more nutrition and energy.

Here you can see the actual internal portion of the PEG secured to the lining of Dad’s stomach. About 12″ of tube is all that shows externally in the center of his abdomen.

We just have a follow-up in the morning and hope to be headed back home tomorrow afternoon.  Will keep you all posted!
